WWYS #127 Coffee Cafe Guest Designer

Hello!  I love challenges and try to play along with different ones as my time permits.

A couple of weeks ago, I joined in with What Will You Stamp for their Daisy Delight challenge.

I was ‘delighted’ to be chosen as the winner, and was asked to guest design for this week’s challenge.

The stamp set for this week is Coffee Cafe.

As you know, I love the DSP for this suite!!!

And that has given me a strong association for cards in the suite colours – browns, blues & greens!

So, for my WWYS #127 card, I wanted to go the total opposite and stamp using pinks, purples and greys!

And I love it!!!

I used the ‘frappe’ stamps and dies for this card – ones I hadn’t played with yet.

And remembered to stamp on DSP, using it for the coffee cup base!  How pretty is the Petal Garden DSP!?!

The sentiment is cut from the larger sentiment to just say ‘friend’ (white embossing on Rich Razzleberry).

The background is a mix of the coffee beans from the Coffee Cafe stamp set and the circle stamp from Timeless Textures – they are a great coffee stain pattern and similar to the one used in the DSP.

Stamp Review Crew – Coffee Cafe

Hello!  What does this lovely Monday hold for you?

It’s week one of the winter school holidays here, so we are having fun between showers, rugging up against the cold and spending some quality time inside!

Winter weather is always a great excuse to put on a movie and spend some time at the craft table as well – so there’s been some of that too!!!

I’ve been busy over the last week putting together not one, but four cards for today’s Stamp Review Crew blog hop featuring the Coffee Cafe stamp set, together with the coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits dies and wonderful Coffee Break DSP.  This suite is great for all occasions!

Prepare to be dazzled as you zoom around the world on a coffee filled adventure with some surprises along the way!

The hop goes around in a circle, so you may have already visited the gorgeous Twila Davis in the US!  The link at the end of this post continues the hop for you – to Bronwyn Eastley, a lovely demonstrator in Tasmania who I love to be able to call a friend!


I initially had a difficult time brewing ideas for this hop (pun intended!) but once I got started, they just flowed!

I’ve kept with the suite colours & overall theme for these designs – I just love the DSP!!!

Here’s all the cards in more detail – warning, lots of photos to come!!!

The first card is a lovely generic sentiment card that would be perfect for any number of occasions.

It really highlights how awesome the DSP is!

And features one of the great sentiments in the stamp set.

I love that it fits in the belly band – which makes it easy to add!

Did you spy those cute little cups on either side of the main coffee image?  They are fussy cut from the DSP – endless possibilities!


The next card has a hard-hitting statement… because you know if someone loves you  more than their coffee, it’s got to be a lot!

The “I Love You” is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set – the font is a lovely compatible match for the “coffee” wording which I’ve stolen from the large sentiment in this stamp set.

I tried a few different lettering options for the ‘more than’ text and in the end I decided that my handwriting emulated when the cafe writes your name on the takeaway cup.

During my collating ideas process, I tried to come up with a card that used the name writing on the coffee cup idea in a funny way – you know, like “Stephen with a ph”… I’m still working on it!


Card #3 is my favourite… I think!

I’ve seen this idea on coffee mugs and thought it went well with the ‘life happens’ sentiment.

We all have that friend who {does not} function until they’ve had their first coffee of the day?!?!  Maybe you live with one?

And the final card is a cello bag shaker card – because those little coffee beans are too cute!!!

I love a good pun – so the ‘thanks a latte’ sentiment tickles my fancy!
